This week we have been busy looking at keeping ourselves healthy. We looked at eating healthily as well as the importance of hygiene.
We set up our potato experiment to look at how germs could be present on different surfaces. It was decided as a class which objects we should test.
We were all very excited to see the results of the experiment. It shocked and surprised us how germs spread onto objects that we would touch everyday! We will definitely be washing our hands more often!!!
On Friday 13th October P6, P6/7 and P7 had a lovely visit from Rania, Athena’s (in P2) mum. She came in to teach us about Greece which links to our countries and continents topics. She helped us understand that not all Greek people nowadays believe in Greek Gods. She also told us some magestic stories! Here are some of the most interesting things we learned from Rania:
Greek people drink lots and lots of coffee
In the olden days, the women couldn’t go to the markets or go to the Olympic games
The story of Daedalus and Icarus
The story of Theseus and the Minotaur
Half the Greek population live in the capital city, Athens
1,600 islands to choose from – they are spoilt for choice!
Greek people don’t just have birthdays – they also have name days
Olive oil is used for lots of different things
Rania grew up in Athens and she spoke in Greek for us!
Thank you so much to Rania for coming in today to talk to us all!

On Tuesday, some children from primary 6 & primary 7 went out with Gus and Olivia from Earth Calling. We learned lots about our local environment, made bramble smoothies, painted our faces with brambles and some of us even held a bee! Here are some photos. What a wonderful group to spend the morning with, well done!
We had a brilliant time getting to make our mark on the mural last week as part of the new bridge celebrations. It was great fun getting to work with Chris Rutterford and we feel very sophisticated saying we have worked with a renowned artist!
